Winter Release Project Parade--Day 8

Hey everyone!  It's Charmaine here with Day 8 of this month's Project Parade!  This month's theme is Triple Play. . .to create a trio of  Verve-y goodness!  I'm here today to share my creation with you! 

One thing I get requests for EVERY year from family and friends is card sets.  Actually, they ask for them all year round, but for the holidays I like to create coordinating sets rather than just putting an assortment of cards together.  For this month's challenge, I decided to create a card set (of all of the same card), a coordinating box to hold the cards and a gift card holder. 
I started out with the card and used last week's Mojo Monday Challenge for the layout.  I used the Merry Wishes set paired with the Vintage Oval Frame set and coordinating die.  I used the Season's Greetings Cuttlebug folder for the base of the card.  I accented with a while gel pen and framed the edges with dots.
For the box, I took a panel of cardstock and embossed it before attaching it to the actual box so that the embossed sentiments would be right side up.  The box was made using an 8.5"x11" piece of cardstock and scoring the 8.5" side at 1.25" on each end and then scoring the 11" side at 4.75" from each end. 

After assembling the box, I added ribbon for the handles and used the Sweet Scallop Tag stamp for the tag along with the coordinating Sweet Scallop die. The sentiment on the tag is from the Glad Tidings set.  I added some tissue paper to house the cards.

I created a gift card holder to put in the box along with the card set.  This is great if you need a little something more to add to the gift.
I hope you've enjoyed my take on the Triple Play Challenge!  Now it's YOUR turn!  :)
